i think both options are fine. but i would only add the junior Bridesmaid or Best Man if you could afford to pay her dress.  since your aunt is paying for hers already, and would have to also pay for her daughters, might be a bit much. then you know them and their financial situation, so maybe it would be fine!  i am asking FIs niece to be a junior Bridesmaid or Best Man, but i knew from the beginning i would be paying for her dress. but i really wanted to include her.  

as for the uneven sides, i would be happy to be in your situation. i have 6 BMs and Fiance has 2 GMs.  i would be thrilled for it be “more” even like yours. so i really dont think 3 and 4 is a big deal at all.  people have convinced me that six and two is fine although i definitely had my doubts!

IMO, don’t add someone just to make the numbers even.  If you want to add the 11 year old because she’s a special kid in your life, etc, by all means do though!  If the parents are struggling financially, could you pick up the cost of the dress?

I agree with PurpleUnicorn.  I think it would be so much fun for her!

I originally had four bridesmaids until one of them went to teach english in China (happy for her!). I didn’t mind having an uneven number, and one of the girls walked in between two of the groomsmen! I wouldn’t worry about having an uneven number. Ask her to be a junior bridemsaid only if you really want her to be.

It doesn’t matter either way but I agree with the other posts that only include the young girl if she means something to you and you’re willing to help her parents out with costs
